How COOL is the inspiration over at the new Pinterest Inspired Challenge, I definitely didn’t want to miss out and you should see the gallery, not to mention the fab DT entries WoW! I decided to film as I created, lots of fussing today, which is typical if I have no definitive plan… that seems to be the drill, but no rush, I’m playing anyway.
I found a card today that I forgot to share, I remember something about wanting to wait til after her birthday, but that was on New Years Day… oops. Love love these sweet owls from from Art Impressions and they are perfect for my sister who has just a little ‘owl’ obsession. This is a little different to my normal style, but one I thought she’d like.
Things are a little wet here on the edge of Cyclone Marcia (which was a Category 5), and with more rain to come it’s time to craft. Especially because they have taken my husband away to help (he is a nurse as well) and where he’s gone there is no power, phones and it’s flooded, but apparently they have found some accommodation. It’s going to be a massive cleanup, but thankfully by some miracle no lives have been lost. I plan on keeping crafty busy so then I won’t have time to worry. Hugs,
Big things are happening at Muse this week, it’s their 100th challenge and Michele has her Designer debut card and it’s brilliant! I am so happy that I found a minute to make a card and join in the fun. I was inspired by her idea to ‘Accentuate the Negative’ but lucked out on the song lyrics….. I suppose I could have tried Happy Birthday to you, but I thought that was a little lame lol.
Here is Michele’s card… love the white on white look, mine’s just a little brighter.
I would also like to share this card with Darnell’s NBUS challenge as this is the first time I’ve used these fab balloon dies from Penny Black. Thanks for another great challenge Darnell!
I’m back tomorrow with another video for Scrapbook Boutique so I look forward to seeing you then.
I made these cards months ago as they were for a publication call with the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine, but I think they are my favourite Chrissy cards for this year. I really like the simplicity of the first and then the bokeh colours, well they kinda make me smile, especially with the shimmer of the sequins. I hope that today you find a smile and get to spend some time with some fun people and of course eat-a-plenty!
(For this call we had to make a card that had two versions one that was simple and easy to reproduce and a more complex version for special friends & family)
Hope you have a wonderful day, whatever it is that you are doing,
